Twenty six years ago on a Friday afternoon,
our daughter was born.
By the time she came along, they were doing sonograms
and telling expectant moms whether they were
having a boy or girl. But since we had to "wait to see"
with our two boys, we decided to
be surprised. And SURPRISED we were!
I could hardly believe my ears, when the doctor said,
"You have a little girl!"
My throat choked up, my eyes filled with tears
and I could not speak for a moment.
When I could, my first words were...
"Praise the Lord!"
I have been praising Him for her ever since!
She has been a joy and delight.
She has brought us to tears...
with her humor and with her beautiful singing.
She has made us proud with her accomplishments
and her excellent choices.
She works hard, plays with enthusiasm,
serves with a loving heart, gives generously,
loves genuinely and is always up for an adventure!
She loves her Lord, her family, the beach, good coffee,
most anything chocolate (especially M&M's!),
pretty dresses, a good pair of jeans, all kinds of shoes
(except flip flops!),
fried shrimp, chicken parmigiana, a good steak, and diet coke.
She loves to sing, ride horses, watch movies, bake bread,
be creative...on the computer or with her hands,
and to make people laugh!
I am so grateful God chose to bless us with her!
I am also grateful that Jesus lives in her heart
and that she loves Him first...above all else!
We were the first to love her, but now she is loved by many!
Happy Birthday, Sweet Girl!
I love you very much!
